Barack Obama to visit Kenya for first time as president

Barack Obama is scheduled to make his first trip as president to Kenya – the country of his father’s birth – in July, the White House announced on Monday.

Obama planned to hold bilateral meetings and to attend a global entrepreneurship summit, the announcement said.

It will be Obama’s fourth trip to Kenya. He visited as a US senator in 2006 and made a trip with his then fiancee Michelle in 1992.

Obama’s father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr, was born in western Kenya in 1936 and died there in a car accident in 1982.
